Seasoned Investment Banker and Chief Executive Officer of Emerging Africa Capital Mrs Toyin Sanni has called for sustainability of the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP).
Sanni made these comments in an interview with Proshare WebTV at the launch of her book “Riding The Eagle: An Investing Guide for Nigeria”.
The former banker noted that regardless of who wins the 2019 Presidential elections, the ERGP policy implementation programme, should not be altered.
Sanni described the ERGP as a set of policy planks that forge a strong foundation for growth and development if adhered to strictly.
Speaking further she observed that after the elections the winner should take a proactive step of quickly announcing a cabinet after inauguration.
The Emerging Africa Capital CEO also emphasized the need for the right rhetoric from the winner of the 2019 Presidential elections, which will be important in incentivizing investors.
On her book Sanni said it was a demonstration of her commitment to Nigeria as a country and as an investment destination. She stressed that it was written with the benefit of over 30 years’ experience helping and guiding investors in the local market, which includes 10 years in the money market and another 20 years in the capital market.
Giving additional insight into the book, Sanni said that it is intended to showcase the opportunities that exists in Nigeria from investments, noting the challenges, key players, and the experiences of those who have invested in Nigeria successfully and why they succeeded. It also captures those who have invested in Nigeria and had not so good stories, stating the reasons why they didn’t have such success.
According to her the book will be useful to both local and international investors, and individuals and corporate investors.
The Emerging Africa Capital Investment Group, also launched its Nigerian 2019 economic outlook report.
